PTP monitoring and verification for broadcasters

PTP monitoring and verification for broadcasters

APC Time’s Rob Skinner presented his thoughts around PTP monitoring and verification to leading broadcast professionals at the Royal Television Society.

The Royal Television Society is an educational charity promoting the art and science of television. It gives a platform to the industry’s most talented individuals allowing them to give insight into the work that goes into making cutting edge contemporary TV, from every aspect of the broadcast industry.

The event held in October aimed to demonstrate to members of the Royal Television Society that a 2110 toolset can interop between different devices and manufacturers.

With a view to teaching broadcast engineers and technologists about the practical applications of ST2110 installations, APC Time took part in a series of talks to delegates who had the opportunity to learn how to make ST2110 work for broadcast infrastructures.

Other subjects covered on the night included ST2110 IP signal routing and an in-depth analysis of arguably the most difficult part of making ST2110 systems work – understanding out-of-band PTP timing. To help and enhance the learning experience, each talk was followed by a practical technology session, which gave delegates the chance to see real-life systems working.

Rob Skinner, APC TIme’s Technical Sales Executive was joined by industry peers from Axon and Arista who discussed ST2110 control systems, the intricacies of PTP timing and its applications for ST2110.
